Catherine Avery (Debbie Allen) has a plan for her son in this sneak peek of Grey's Anatomy Season 9, Episode 16: "This Is Why We Fight" (February 21), and Jackson (Jesse Williams) fans aren't going to like the sound of it.
It turns out Richard (James Pickens Jr.) has filled Mama Avery in on all of the drama at Seattle Grace-Mercy West, and she's decided it's time for Jackson to pack his things and move to Boston. "I've seen the kind of garbage that goes on in a Pegasus hospital," she warns.
Fortunately, Jackson finds an unexpected ally in Richard, who goes into a rant about standing tall and staying in place. We wonder if Catherine tried to convince him to move to Boston, too? It sounds like that might be the case.
Whatever Richard's reasons, we're glad he apparently gives Jackson the strength to say no to his mom, because we don't want Jackson and his gorgeous eyes to move away.
That said, we don't blame Catherine for trying. We know they're all on a TV show and there's no way the hospital will go under or get bought up by evil overlords, but from where she's standing, running while there's still time seems like the logical choice.
